About this project
Living DNA, working with the world's leading academics, scientists and genealogists are seeking your help. Together we are looking to map the world's genetic ancestry to the finest scale possible, one where we identify patterns of DNA within countries. The academic team who were involved in the landmark publication “The fine-scale genetic structure of the British population” are now looking to extend the level of genetic detail within Ireland. Our preliminary research indicates at least a dozen areas of Ireland that may have distinct genetic differences. If you're lucky enough to be Irish, this is where you come in.
